Os Raptores I 1969

Translated by: 

In Os Raptores (Teixeira, 1969), a well-trained group of kidnappers are wreaking havoc on Rio de Janeiro’s bourgeoisie with a flawless ransom scheme. Dutifully following their trail, a Rio de Janeiro’s police inspector is on a mission to uncover who is behind the series of kidnappings. This slow-burning tale of greed and betrayal features a tour de force performance from actor/director Aurélio Teixeira and cements the filmmaker as one of the elite filmmaking talents of the 60s Brazilian genre scene.
